28 Video Sharing Sites To Upload Your MegaUpload Content To (Provided You Can Get It Back)

Dean Marsden

by Dean Marsden on 3rd February 2012

Video SharingIf you hadn’t heard the recent news, US authorities shut down the hugely popular MegaUpload video sharing website on 19th January 2012. It had about 150 million registered users, making it one of the most popular file sharing sites on the internet. It was accused of costing £320million in lost revenues on copyrighted material. However the majority of users had been using the service for legitimate uses include high performance video hosting.

The video hosting service, branded MegaVideo, provided users with a premium video hosting service. There are more and more premium video hosting solutions being launched but these are solely aimed at businesses. For personal users, there remains three or fours main video hosting sites that attract a lot of viewers.

If you are looking to distribute your content to other audiences, you should check out some other websites that could well provide an engaging audience for your content. I have compiled a list of video sharing websites that let you upload your videos rather than just link to them. Whilst researching this list I realised that a lot of video sharing services come and go and many of the websites I have previously seen were no longer live. Some had been bought by larger organisations but many of them had just been shut down, most likely due to the cost of running this sort of website.

Here are 20 video sharing websites you can choose to upload your content to and reach a far greater audience:

  1. http://www.youtube.com
  2. http://www.dailymotion.com
  3. http://www.veoh.com
  4. http://www.vimeo.com
  5. http://www.myspace.com/video/user-videos
  6. http://www.metacafe.com
  7. http://www.break.com

    Try Mejuba.com. Unlimited storage for both videos and pictures and
    it’s completly free. No monthly limits or qoutas. You can upload a wooping 1GB PER upload!
    Photos and videos are stored in their original formats and sizes and are kept unmodified for backup.
    I also like that you can geo-tag your stuff so it shows up on a map. It’s free, fast, nice design as SO much better than Flickr and Photobucket.

    Thanks for this list. I’d like to ask a question, is it good to use video sharing sites for SEO?

      Hi Ricky, Yes, you can distribute videos as part of your digital marketing strategy. You may also wish to publish them on your own website and optimise for those to appear in the search results.
